Commentary Post - State E-Cigarette Registry Bills and What to Make of Them
Commentary Post - A Closer Look at the 23 FDA Authorized E-Cigarettes

Already in 2024 , a slew of so-called “e-registry” bills have been introduced around the nation. These bills establish state-run directories of e-cigarette products that can be sold within the state and limit these products to those that have submitted premarket tobacco product applications to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

In this 60-minute presentation, the Public Health Law Center has convened a panel of public health experts to discuss whether and to what extent these laws advance public health goals or if, as some critics claim, they help consolidate the market for big tobacco companies while diverting attention from proven public-health strategies.
